James Corden and Anne Hathaway got down in a rap battle on The Late Late Shows "Drop the Mic" segment and it was a no-holds-barred obliteration. In a true takedown of each other's personal life and careers, James Corden said what Hatha-haters everywhere have been wanting to get off their chests.
Corden kicked off the battle by insulting Anne Hathaways lack of rap skills, "Am I the Drake of this battle and Anne is Meek Mill." Corden continues to fire blows about her movie, "Get Smart" and finishes his first turn by saying, Now its her turn to act a little scary, 'cause the only Catwoman I acknowledge is Halle Berry."
Hathaway, dressed in an all-black ensemble and a hat (annoyingly) positioned sideways, was up next to diss Corden's career. She spit-off line after line about how nobody has heard of James Corden, how bad his ratings are and finishes with, "I'm like your wife: I watch Seth Meyers instead."
The takedown continues as Corden brings up more of Hathaway's movie career, the unlikely possibility that she will host the Oscars again, and her terrible accent in the 2011 movie "One Day". While Hathaway rips on Cordens weight and the size of his suits, and his devotion to One Direction saying, "the only direction that makes sense is away from you."
Anne Hathaway recognizes the Hatha-haters by ending the last verse with, "I was hated and shaded, but now I've been liberated," she rapped. "Now you know what it's like to get Hatha-slayed."
I wouldn't go that far, Anne. But props to her for holding her own as Corden pretty much bashed all her recent successes. Catch the hilarious five-minute battle in the video above.
